Re: fabric tube covering a cord?

Linda Rayburn
 

This method encases the seam allowance: you need to have your cording twice as long as your final finished length. Place your fabric wrong side out and fold it over the welting. Use your zipper foot and move your needle to the right so you are not sewing snugly up to the welting. Now sew along the welting to 1/2" from bottom edge of your fabric, pivot and sew across going over the welting. Hold the uncovered welting a few inches above the seam and slowly pull the fabric down toward the uncovered welting all the way to the end. Now you have turned your welting right side out. You may have to adjust your needle position depending on the thickness of the fabric to get the fabric to turn easily.

Hi,
Not sure what the 14000 is at present I have an 11000SE and want to upgrade and was not sure re 12000 or the 15000 now your talking about the 14000 now even more confused?

Filling in for the Wizard, who is walking Toto, Jim says:
The 14000 appears to be a reduced function version of the 15000, lacking the built-in WiFi, some designs and stitches. At the moment it is offered only in UK, so you probably don't need to be concerned with it.


MBX4

pegijane39@...
 

 Jim,  I have upgraded my MBX 3 to 4 on my desktop and now want to upgrade my laptop.

My problem is that the dongle for MBX 3 is now not usable so how do I upgrade my laptop to

MBX 4?


Not wishing to leave you with a dangling, unusable dongle, Jim says:

You don't need the old dongle. All you need to do is use the MBX 4 DVD to install on the laptop. I would suggest uninstalling MBX 3 first, but that's optional. Once you've installed it you should check for updates on this page.

You can use the zipper foot to enable you to sew close to the cording and adjust your needle position as necessary.

Re: Question for Jim regarding LAN settings

Gail
 

Thanks so much, Jim.  I'm sure you are correct.  We just figured out a temporary fix by taking the router out of the communication  box in the wall that it sits in.  With the router out, the wifi signal is much stronger to the machine and I can connect to the laptop and the iPad.  My husband is going to mount the router on the wall above the com box for now and we will decide if we need to have Bubba come back.  I was just glad you were able to understand my non techno lingo.


Thanks again,

Gail

Re: Janome 12000 - doesnt recognize full bobbin in embroidery mode

xr8gal@...
 

Hi Jim,

Many thanks for your reply and answer, brilliant and witty as usual!

Yes the A board was changed as well as the LCD screen.  It took them 3 months as one part was on back order from Japan.

It looks like its back to the shop on Monday.  Was hoping maybe it was something I could do but obviously not.

As for my patience, it is growing quite thin!  Needless to say, I will be sending a stern email to the shop not only about the bobbin issue, but also about the scratched plate, greasy finger marks and the service that was supposed to be done but wasn't!  I'm considering contacting Janome Australia about it also.

Thanks again for you help.  I know that you are some distance away in the US but at least we can get an idea as to whether it is just a simple fix we can do or whether we have to take it back to the shop.  Your input in invaluable.

Best Regards,
Irene Lowe

Question for Jim regarding LAN settings

Gail
 

I have had my machine for over a year and have been connected wirelessly with no problem  Recently, I got a new fiber optic network connection and I reconfigured the connections to the sewing machine.  No problem.  Today, I am unable to stay connected.  I tried to redo the connection and when I'm done the screen on the machine tells me I'm connected to my network.  When I try to connect the iPad or laptop, it may or may not connect, but if it does, I lose it right away. 

When I look at the screen with my LAN settings, it has my network name, my IP address and my machine name.  Does that mean that the machine is still connected to the network? 


Not sure If I should have DCHP on or off.  If on, my IP address does not show up, if Off, it does.  Have no idea what this means.


Any suggestions at all?  Not even sure what questions to ask next.

Gail


Shaking out the suggestion bag, Jim finds a bottle cap, some gum, lint, and this:

The fact that the machine has an IP, and you can connect albeit briefly, tells us that the WiFi is working. Some fiber optic services (e.g. Verizon FIOS) come with their own wireless router. It may be using a different wireless channel than your previous router, as the installer probably just left it at the default out of the box. The 15000 doesn't have much of a WiFi antenna, and it's sensitive to interference. If the router is further away from the machine than the original it may also have a weak signal.


You probably have support for the new network, so you could just call Bubba back out to tweak the router until the machine connection is stable. If you want to try it yourself, you can probably connect to the router from your computer. Take the IP from your machine and enter the first 3 numbers in your browser address bar, followed by .1. (For example, 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1 or 10.0.1.1) This will get you into the router configuration. Of course Bubba may have it password protected, in which case you won't be able to do anything, but if it's not you can probably change the WiFi channel. In the US there are 11 of them, but they are so close in frequency that it really boils down to 1, 6 and 11. The ones in between aren't far enough away in frequency to be useful. Default is usually 6, or it may say "Automatic". Try other frequencies if you can to see if it becomes more stable.


Worst case, you may need to get a WiFi extender. Those are available from anyplace where computer gear is sold.

wondering too if we actually "need" to upgrade to Windows 10?

Fighting the battle between "want" and "need", Jim says:
There is no compelling reason to upgrade to Windows 10. There's nothing wrong with it, it's fine, but it is a bit different with more to learn. I have stayed with Windows 7, and probably will until Microsoft stops supporting it.

My 12000 App - What is the latest version?

juliadlf1 <no_reply@...>
 

Hi Jim:
I had several update notices on my IPad which included the My 12000. However, when I click on the Update icon for it, it goes to update, shows the circle to load the update and then bounces back to the Update icon showing again. I continue to have an alert that it needs to be updated.
Not sure if this is a problem with the App or with Apple. All my other apps that were needed to be updated went fine so just the My 12000 seems to be a problem.
I am on the latest version for the IPad.

Julia

Using his newly updated keyboard, Jim says:
I've had that problem with various apps from time to time. It's all Apple. First try powering off the iPad, then turning it back on. Often that will nudge it into completing the update. If it doesn't, delete the app and download it again. You'll get the latest version and you won't have to buy it again.
